I get what T123 is saying and agree with part of it. But maybe you can answer this.Firstly we are close to the salary cap now so how are we supposed to run a big enough and good enough squad without the benefit of DR? To get players good enough to compete in this league you either need big attendances ( we haven't got this) or a wealthy sugar daddy ( not got this either) It is all well and good all this idealism about our own players and magically produce a top drawer 6 & 13 to help Carl out but where do they come from? Everyone twines about loads of travellers, Wigan DR is the new evil, the're aren't any locally, and now because there was a few knock backs in recruitment pre season we are still waiting for clearance on one player and you have beat the board with that stick for months. So what's the solution T123? You have told everyone on here numerous times how you predicted a crisis so maybe you can save the day and tell Phil and the BOD what to do next.
By the way - there is no need to panic!
good post and that's all I want him to do, give us a realistic solution.if we are ill prepared and DR causes instability then that's his opinion but write an essay on the solution and not one on the same things.
and a good few things Wigan & Warrington ; - although I'm sure the only place I said the lad would want to be is in a Widnes shirt . Someone please send me a link to their forum so I can have a gander. Dec will give his all no matter where and his dad will kill me if he see this -
wonderofwood i think it's safe to say you won't be getting a Christmas card of the haven fans lol
They switched Carter to the other wing for the second half and still Squires scored down their right flank. On this showing from Workington we should encounter few problems, BUT (there's always one!) according to their supporters, they play expansive rugby at home; saw none of that today.
I thought Stokes favoured Batley (or perhaps their misdemeanours were seen in a different light); he sin binned Oldstrum (I think it was he) for something that was not that bad, but he failed to see the head high tackle on the Worky player which put that lad out of the game with the Batley player substituted immediately after the offence.
The attendance given in Sporting Life astounds me. It says 1200 were there; I would reckon half that at best!
In fairness to Batley, they took their chances well with Squires outstanding and scoring three tries uphill, albeit from a short distance. The first was from a kick and chase; he grabbed the ball in the air while the Worky full back wad waiting gor it to sit in his arms. The second was from his own kick and collect (it was good) and the third, he stopped close to the touch line, the Town winger held off and Squires then carried on. His fourth was in the dim and distant far Gornergat from nowhere I was standing.
who said we play expansive rugby at DP? Our pitch size means expansive RL is difficult. It's more the size for forward battles and we have assembled a big pack as batley fans have commented from sunday and two forward debutants to come in this sunday from Oz and wires.No easy games in this league and if we are to win on sunday it will be down the middle. Safe journey up.
If he has family reasons then all the best to him and his family that's his priority. on the rugby side of things he would have been leading a shambles. All the deluded rumours can begin now of who they think will be coming.
I heard today hes here on a season loan, his dad is a shaven die hard !!!, but someone tell me what he did today !!!! hes befo carrying a bit round the middle for a young fella, hopefully PV will get that jam off and we can develope another young Cumbrian for better things
if he is on a season long loan we are desperate at HB and it must mean our aussie HB hasn't happened.i am disappointed.
After today they could bring in billy slater and anyone else they are going down with us they Were just a bit better than us the score flatterd them every other team is better than us both.----- Thanks for that WHITEHAVENRLFC4EVA top post lad!!
i don't think anyone will underestimate them as it's a Derby match. However if Town had travelled to CP and got hammered like that and we're due to play a Derby at the wreck the following week we wouldn't be saying it would still be a comfortable win.especially if most of our fans thought we were way too light in the pack and needed 3 to 4 signings sort it out and also if we were enquiring about season ticket refunds and slamming new signings and the coach already. Just saying.
